Chappaquiddick Trailer

"What do we do to help the Senator?" "We tell the truth…" Entertainment Studios has unveiled the first official trailer for a film titled Chappaquiddick, referencing the Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts and the accident that occurred there in 1969. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this year to mostly positive reviews, and will hit theaters in April. Chappaquiddick stars Jason Clarke as politician Ted Kennedy, whose political career became derailed in the aftermath of a fatal car accident that claimed the life of a young campaign strategist, Mary Jo Kopechne, as played by Kate Mara. The film's full cast includes Clancy Brown, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern, Jim Gaffigan, Andria Blackman, Olivia Thirlby, and Taylor Nichols. This looks damn good, seems to be a solid political thriller with some intricate twists.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for John Curran's Chappaquiddick, direct from YouTube:

Well, isn't that just nice, to show people what it means to be powerful, rich and irresponsible. Such a drama ...

Is it Trump that you are describing? ;D

In many ways, I'm describing a lot of politicians. Trump is their wet dream, I guess. And that's what films like these do: they justify their deeds as some kind of profound drama while they are irresponsible pricks. Nothing better than that ...

I really enjoyed John Curran's film "Tracks", but this looks like a mess. Some of the casting choices leave my head scratching. The story itself is another tale of Kennedy lore, not shrouded in the Camelot concept, but riddled with disgrace. I can't quite tell where to story is leading either. It is a tale of disappointing a father? Is it a story of a Kennedy falling from grace? Both? Anyway...

One of my favorites. It's a shame The Goon never came to fruition.

My friends and I each picked 5 B-list character actors who would star in our own movies. He's one of mine.
